The Use of Toilets

Toilets are used for one thing and that is either number one or number two. Levi, my 20 month old has found another purpose for the toilet. He uses toilet water to style his hair. I did not connect the dots when I found his clothes and hair wet. I thought he stood on a stool step and used the faucet. I changed him into dry clothes and we went to church. Upon arriving home, my roommate Rhonda showed me Levi's toothbrush she had found on her wet bathroom floor. It only took a moment to connect the dots. What can one do, but laugh and hope the toilet water was clean when he was playing in it!

Elleanna and the Earthworm

Today Elleanna found a pet worm that she put into a plastic container with some grass and some mud. She showed it to her friend Melissa. 

Melissa said, "Squeeze the head." I interjected that they might be squeezing the butt so maybe they shouldn't do it. Secretly I didn't want the poor, pathetic worm to be tortured by a four year old and a five year old. 

Melissa thoughtfully asked if the worm goes poo-poo. 

With confidence, Elleanna said, "I think the worm poops mud." 

Tomorrow I think I need to go get a worm farm and so we can learn more about worms. 

"I think it is a boy," said Elleanna. "Maybe it's a girl." 

"I don't think they have a sex," I said trying to recall facts about worms. Ya, I think we need to get that worm farm.
